Abstract: In this introductory chapter, we establish this book as a story of relationships, intersecting lives and experiences, as they have taken place in a remote township in northern Australia, between local Indigenous residents and a group of researchers. These researchers include three anthropologists, an artist, archaeologist, and literary scholar, each of whom has shared in the documenting of Indigenous people’s lives through the interface of ethnography, relational encounters, and knowledge sharing. The introduction outlines why this book commits to a high level of reflexivity and consideration of how we build knowledge, share knowledge, how we encounter new knowledge, and how well we are positioned to understand the lived experiences of others, while making ourselves fully available to personal change.
